Monthly Book Roundup for March

roundup_post_graphic_txt
Hello fellow bookworms! This month has been another terrible reading month for me, only finishing two books that had previously started in February! I’m going into April with a positive attitude though, with hope I can pick up some books which are easier going or quicker reads which will help me back on track with my Goodreads challenge!

…So basically the books I said I was going to read this month but never got round to doing so! I will be upping my game, I only have 6 weeks left of uni work which is absolutely crazy but I will make as much time as possible for reading around my very busy schedule, and then get moving when I’m completely finished!

Posts from March

I don’t usually include this in my Monthly Roundup posts, but I thought I made add a little extra, so here are the posts which have appeared on my blog in March…

Literary Quotes I Live By 

Books That Surprised Me

Books on my Spring TBR

Books Set In Other Countries

So all Top Ten Tuesday posts, but that is all I have time to write at the moment because they are quick and easy for me to put together! Come the summer, I am planning to bring more posts your way so keep your eyes peeled…

Monthly Book Roundup for February


Hello fellow bookworms! Like January, February has been a shocking reading month for me, but I forgive myself because it is the shortest month of the year… is that a good enough excuse?

What I Read (or rather didn’t read…) in January

roundup_post_graphic_txt
Hello fellow bookworms! I can’t believe January is over already! Time moves too fast for my liking, especially now I’m in my last months of university and, as much as the work is really piling up now, I don’t think I want to leave and go into the big wide world… I have to adult! Anyway, because I’ve has so much work to be getting on with, I’ve barely had any time to fit reading in! I’ve only really managed one full book this month… the start of the year reading slump didn’t help either…

Hello fellow bookworms! I suck at finding time to read! No, that’s a lie, I think I’m in another reading slump… Why am I only getting through 3 books a month? Honestly, I’m the worst bookworm you’ll ever meet! Anyway, here’s the measley amount I read this month…

Monthly Book Roundup for September

roundup_post_graphic_txt
Hello fellow bookworms! Where has September gone? I feel like this month really has flown by (I think I say that about every month?) I’m back at uni now and already drowning in work, but I’m still continuing to blog when I can. I also haven’t been able to read as much, although I’m using my time when I’m early to uni to get some reading done, and audiobooks have also become my friends for my long commute twice a week. However, I’m trying to read some shorter books now (with the theory that I can get through them quicker…) and I’m only 3 books behind my Goodreads Reading Challenge schedule (my life revolves around that thing I’m not sorry).

What books have I read this month?

29056083

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne & John Tiffany (5 stars)

25162632

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (4 stars)

29917370

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Audiobook) by JK Rowling, narrated by Stephen Fry (5 stars)

I’ve just realised it’s been a very Rowling-filled September… not that I’m complaining!

Side note: Stephen Fry was an absolutely incredible narrator for Harry Potter, and I will try to write a review for the audiobook (somewhen…)
